Great Mercy

“And if sins come to be pardoned, there God’s mercies alone can pardon sins committed against himself, the great sovereign Being, not can any creature have any influence thereinto–‘none can forgive sins but God,’ Luke 5:21–but besides, for this, that he alone hath mercy great enough in him to do it. The creatures have not mercy sufficient enough in them great sins they could not find in their hearts to pardon; so great an iniquity, if to themselves, as sin is against God, they cannot forgive: ‘Who is a God like unto our God, pardoning iniquity?’ ” –Thomas Goodwin “Works of…” Vol. 8

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
